Copies of Model Rail issue 163 will be hitting the shelves of newsagents this week. Within the pages are a host of useful articles offering tips and techniques for modellers of all abilities. In the Workbench section, we have a Supertest on Rolling Roads and Model Lubricants, while there's also a 'Basics' guide to keeping your locos running in tip-top condition.

What's more, there's also a free DVD on the cover (featuring footage from Model Rail Live and much more) and free China Clay hood kits.

MR163 offers tips and advice on keeping your models properly lubricated...

... and a range of rolling roads are assessed.


  1. You see a lot of these rolling roads on you tube videos. I have the Gaugemaster one which I use followed by a run on my garden railway. Most important is clean wheel treads and wheel backs. I only lubricate IF the loco starts to squeak. There's an old saying, 'if it ain't broke don't try to fix it'.
